Sunny Studio | Poppies & Bees

Hello there, I am delighted to be back guest designing with Sunny Studio today. I love that they have so much variety to their products - cute, beautiful, fun, useful ... something for everyone! My projects today use the Poppy Fields set, as well as the Chloe Alphabet set, as I fell in love with them when I used them the first time

My first projects use the Poppy Fields stamps and dies. These poppies are so pretty! I love how realistic they look when they are all stamped up. I think they look great stamped in the traditional red, but for my projects, I went with pink and blue for something a little different.

I started off the card by stamping the Sunny Studio Poppy Fields Stamp Set poppies and leaves using four shades of pink ink (Altenew Cherry Blossom Inks) for the poppies and two shades of green for the leaves (Altenew Green Fields Inks). I used black and greys for the middles. They were die cut out using the Sunny Studio Poppy Fields Dies and then set aside while I worked on my background. 

I took one of the Sunny Studio Slimline Pennants Dies and die cut it from Sunny Studio Subtle Grey Tones Paper. It was cut down and adhered to an A2 white card base with thin foam tape. I then adhered the poppies and leaves on top with liquid glue.
I took the Sunny Studio Hello Word Die and die cut it three times from white cardstock with adhesive sheet on the back. They were layered up and adhered to the card. I wanted an accompanying sentiment, so I stamped the ‘happy birthday’ from the Sunny Studio Floating By Stamp Set on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Detail White Embossing Powder. It was cut into a strip and added to the card with thin foam tape. To finish off the card, I added a few Iridescent Bubbles.

I thought it would be fun to create a little tag too! I stamped the poppies in four shades of blue (Altenew Glacier Caves Inks) and die cut them out. I cut a tag using the Sunny Studio Build A Tag 1 Die Set from white cardstock and then ran it through my die cutting machine with the Sunny Studio Woodgrain EmbossingFolder. The poppies, stems and leaves were adhered on top, and I simply finished off with a twine bow and a few Iridescent Bubbles

For my final project, I started off by die cutting a panel of white cardstock using a Sunny Studio Slimline Pennants Die and added ink blending to it using Distress Oxide Inks (Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch). I then cut the clouds from the Sunny Studio Balloon Rides Dies and adhered them on top, cutting the excess off the sides with scissors. The panel was adhered to an A2 white card base with foam tape.

I took the Sunny Studio Chloe Alphabet Dies and die cut the letters from black cardstock three times for each letter so that I could stack them up for some dimension. They were adhered to the card with liquid glue. I then stamped the bees and hearts from the Sunny Studio Just Bee-Cause Stamp Set with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on to white cardstock. 

They were coloured with Copic Markers and die cut out with the coordinating dies. I adhered the bees to the card with foam tape and the hearts with liquid glue. To finish off, I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the hearts for some shine.

  1. What a beautiful array of cards (and tag!) The subtle grey patterned paper on the card is so pretty behind the gorgeous poppies, I love how you have done that with a banner. The little tag is so cute with it's woodgrain background! And of course who doesn't love some cute clouds and bees! Your blending on your second card is so smooth! xxx

  2. I like the meant to be card. I even have a chance of copying your design!
